I am Eduardo, 25 years old and my father 60 years, we manage the school together, the school already had other types of progams, we already had people from Russia, Germany, Poland, Colombia, Mexico, and others, but, the people were interns. Every person that came, was a really good experience, for both sides. We are trying to use this platform for the first time.
